Hi friends!

The For the Luv of Art DT was invited to participate in the October Challenges at Better Living Through Scrapbooking this month and you can see our Challenge #1 Favorite Color Layouts on their blog now!

You can participate to compete for the grand prize* at {Better Living} and I hope you have as much fun as we did!

Here are the rules:

“Favorite Color Challenge” Blog Link
Create a layout dedicated to your favorite color.

Chose at least 2 of the following:
1. Journal on the layout as if you are speaking directly to your favorite color, and tell it why you love it, and what it means to you.
2. Take a photo of something you love that is in your favorite color, and use it on your layout.
3. Use rounded corners somewhere on your layout.
4. Create hand-doodling somewhere on your page.
5. Make the name of your favorite color a prominent part of your title.”

My Layout:

“I Like Pink” by Julie Ann Shahin
I used the For The Love of Art “My Favorite Things” Stamp Set on this page showcasing my favorite color, pink. 

I actually almost did a layout on yellow, as I have said for years that yellow is my favorite color. But as I looked around, I wear a lot of pink. I buy a lot of pink. I use a lot of pink. But rarely yellow. It's true that my scraproom is painted yellow, and I'm a firm believer that in most rooms only a very small dose of yellow is needed. I thought that I needed to give pink it's due.


Additional Challenges

  • Weekly Card Challenge October 4 with Renee - Make a Halloween Card
  • October 5 Tuesday Layout Challenge - "This week's challenge is to bring out that inner animal in you! Yes, we are scrapbooking a photo that has an animal in it. It can be a photo of a pet, a critter you found outside or it can be like mine where the animal is a prop. Sky is the limit, just make sure it's an animal IN THE PHOTO."
